Planning and Managing December Exhaustion – Daily Quote


December’s reputation is that it is the busiest month of the year. My calendar confirms the legitimacy of that claim. I am exhausted just contemplating my commitments. Multiple party invitations, friends wanting to meet for dinner, and shopping for perfect presents, create a dogpile on the list of tasks I want to complete before we bide goodbye to 2019. I also have the ongoing remodel, with endless decisions required to keep the project on track. I need a nap.

With added responsibilities and heightened expectations, I am including a few more items to my daily program.  I am taking care of myself to keep my energy at optimum levels. This includes rigorous adherence to getting enough sleep. I wasn’t kidding about the nap. They say the best results are relaxing for 10 to 30 minutes between 2 and 3 pm.

I have committed to observing my water intake, ensuring I am well hydrated. Monitoring alcohol consumption is likewise important as it can contribute to dehydration and feeling tired. I know it is easier said than done at many holiday gatherings, but it is worth leaning towards moderation. The last thing I am adding is a recommitment to my yoga practice as it helps me remain centered and calm.

How do you power through your December schedule?


Keep on writing.

  1. I am not fond of this time of year any more. Everyone is so tense and rushing around and for the life of me I can’t see why. Whatever happened to an old fashioned, laid back Christmas, anyway?
    Or am I just too old?

    • I enjoy the season, and being busy, but it is all about pacing yourself and creating a schedule. I can’t leave everything until the last minute or I would be a crazy bunny. Wishing you a laid back Christmas. 🎄
